Hand Hygiene healthcare workers


It is important for nurse leaders to engage with other nurse leaders to understand professional roles. One of these roles include being a change agent.

You will engage with your clinical preceptor to identify a minor issue or concern that require an immediate change.
You will work collaboratively or independently to make the change.
Consider an appropriate PICOT resolution.
Develop a 15-questionnaire survey to determine if the problem can be changed by your resolution.
Using the research strategy, you previously learned, complete the project and document the steps in writing.

APA Style in-text citations and references where appropriate.
Minimum of 5 scholarly references to support your data.
